“A sheer delight” BRITISH THEATRE GUIDE
Catch this spellbinding adaptation of Jane Austen’s captivating novel as it returns to tour in 2013.
Unceremoniously uprooted from her humble family home, intelligent young Fanny Price is dropped into the bustling, aristocratic household of her uncle, Sir Thomas Bertram, where she finds herself buffeted from one crisis to the next. Yet throughout this turmoil one thing remains a constant – her love for the generous, worthy and steadfast Edmund Bertram.
But will this love be her salvation? Or will she be forced to marry the charismatic Henry Crawford for connections and wealth alone?
Written by Tim Luscombe, whose other acclaimed Austen adaptations include Northanger Abbey and Persuasion, Mansfield Park is a must-see for lovers of Jane Austen, and indeed all classic drama, from the country’s last remaining Regency Theatre, the Theatre Royal, Bury St Edmunds.
